Hey, I really enjoy listening to your podcast and that pushed me towards preordering your book. I would love to watch your show, but as I am from Poland I am not allowed to do so, because of some stupid laws concerning the region and what not. That pisses me off, because this way I am forced to watch it some other way, and I’d rather didn’t do that, but oh well. Any way, great job, maybe one day it will be possible to watch your show in polish TV (doubt it).

Good stuff! That lawn mower joke sounds like something Marc would say.

Sounded like Marc’s ideal guest to me. Great stories. Dangerfield greeting people in his robe - priceless!  Really enjoyed this one . . . . . thanks Marc.

Is there anyway to get your show outside the US (but not from Canada).

Both Marc and Mark referenced Bob Shaw.  I googled him and found this link:

This was fun to hear.  Thank you.

Great interview. It didn’t click with me who Mark Schiff was until after I’d listened, even though the voice was so familiar. Somehow, I didn’t associate the nameless comedian in my memory (having seen him countless times on television in the ‘80s) with Seinfeld and Reiser’s generation. Funny guy, and a prime WTF guest—Jewish, of a generation preceding Marc’s, knew Rodney, anger issues. E-harmony did the booking.

Loved the tallis discussion with Mark Schiff! Wondering if you have a crumbled up funeral home yarmulka stuffed in the velvet bag, too?
